56 Abstract Clothing Designs

From Abstract Organ-Adding Attire to Outlandish Sci-Fi Menswear

— July 31, 2013 — Fashion
Incorporating architectural structures and geometric shapes into the design of an outfit is a fantastically creative way to add artistic elements to the overall look, and these abstract clothing designs are some perfect examples of how modern day runways are becoming more like art exhibits.

The most alluring aspects about abstract designs is the fact that you ordinarily aren't able to discern what the overall appearance or object is actually meant to represent. The use of bold shapes and structures, odd frames and often three-dimensional features serves to make these clothing designs look more fitted for art galleries than fashion stores.

From Sci-Fi menswear looks that feature bold geometric forms to contemporary zen couture that showcases multiple layered frocks, these abstract clothing designs are serving to bring fashion to a new and artistic level.
